Two Iranian Christians are free Monday after months of imprisonment and trial.
Police arrested Maryam Rostampour and Marzieh Amirizadeh Esmaeilabad in March 2009 for their Christian faith and activities.
They endured eight months of repeated interrogations and solitary confinement in Tehran's notorious Evin prison. They refused to recant their faith in Christ, even though it meant they could have gone free.
They were released in November, but still faced trial before an Islamic court. On Monday, the two were acquitted of all charges and have left Iran.
"I believe our arrest, imprisonment and subsequent release were in the timing and plan of God, and it was all for His glory," Rostampour said. "The prayers of people encouraged and sustained us throughout this ordeal."
